Mumbai Indians wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan delivered an important message to his teammates and the fans during the training session in Mumbai ahead of IPL 2024.

Mumbai Indians' players have assembled at the camp in Mumbai to begin their preparation for the upcoming IPL season. The likes of skipper Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Dewald Brevis, Tilak Verma, Tim David, Gerald Coetzee and others have joined the squad and began hitting at the nets.

In a video shared by Mumbai Indians on its Instagram handle, Ishan Kishan implored his Mumbai Indians' cricketers and fans not to throw litter water bottles around and keep the ground clean, adding these small things will bring a lot in life.

"I would just say that everybody comes for the practice but people should not throw water bottles everywhere. Try and keep your ground clean. Just small things and you will improve everything. These small changes are very important,” Ishan Kishan said in a video

Ishan Kishan will return to action when Mumbai Indians take on Gujarat Titans at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on April 1. The 26-year-old was away from professional cricket after withdrawing from the South Africa tour due to mental fatigue. Kishan returned to competitive cricket during DY Patil T20 Cup, representing Reserve Bank Of India (RBI).

Ishan Kishan has been in the news for all wrong reasons of late. The young wicketkeeper-batter was removed from central contract list for players after he didn't partake in the recently concluded Ranji Trophy season. Instead, Ishan started training for IPL 2024 with Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal at More Cricket Academy in Baroda.
